Director for the Capital Regional District

Profession: Director


Gary Holman is a Canadian politician, currently Salt Spring Island Director for the Capital Regional District. He served formerly Legislative Assembly of British Columbia from 2013 to 2017.

He represented the electoral district of Saanich North and the Islands as a member of the British Columbia New Democratic Party.

Holman narrowly won the seat in the 2013 provincial election, in an almost perfect three-way split with the Liberal and Green candidates. He was defeated in the 2017 election by Adam Olsen, the same Green candidate he had faced in 2013.

He was previously the party's candidate in the same district in the 2009 election, losing narrowly to then-incumbent MLA Murray Coell.

Prior to being an MLA, Holman served for six years as the Capital Regional District director for Salt Spring Island, and is credited for getting the island's first BC Transit bus started. He rejoined the CRD's Board in the 2019 local government elections.

Holman is an economist with a master's degree from Simon Fraser University, and has worked as a consulting economist for various initiatives across BC, including the Nisga'a Treaty.

Holman was the party's lead spokesperson on democratic reform, and the deputy spokesperson for BC Ferries and the environment.

GlobalEng.biz pays special attention to the activities of famous people: politicians, officials, businessmen, bankers, cultural and sports figures. Their opinion largely determines the development of the political, social and economic life of England and the United Kingdom. The section is constantly edited by our journalists for the relevance of the information. Here you can find information about the CEOs and presidents of top companies in England, officials and public figures who play a key role in the development of the region.
The goal of the project is to create a comfortable information space for all market participants, as well as to introduce the readership to business people in England.
We have created an impressive database of people in England, which contains information about the career path, education and other important information about a person.
Thanks to the automatic calculation of the number of mentions of a person in the news sections "English news" and "English press releases", a rating of the popularity and influence of persons is formed on the portal. The team GlobalEng.biz monitors changes in the rating and encourages project participants for their success. In general, the rating of participants is based on an in-depth analysis of the activity of PR services of famous people, and also reflects the qualitative state of the information field formed by the media and press services around the organization.
"Business people of England" is a project about people who, with their ideas, words and actions, have a great influence on the development and prosperity of England.
